What are the minimium system requirements for Menuet?
I have a:
60mhz Pentium
24mb RAM
Is this enough to run Menuet? I wouldn't mind running in some horrible video mode. Just as long as I can stay away from windows 3.1
Also, is there a python interpreter in development by chance? And is Menuet SDL compatible? My and my friends are making a game, whether it will turn out to be good or not isn't known, and it is a combination of C and python. It relies heavily on pygame which in turn relies heavily on SDL.
Thanks for any help,
HK

and for the 24 megs of ram, the current ram detection sucks so hardcode your ram size into the kernel (else you would possibly only see 16 megs :/)
you'll find it, it's in kernel.asm

MenuetOS is NOT SUPPOSED to work under 32MB of RAM.

But, in theory...
Can it run in a 486 DX2 with 12Mb RAM or less??

No, it will hang up.
People have managed to run older versions of MeOS with only 16MB of RAM, but it was really unstable. Thoses versions didn't work below 16MB.
